    Michelle S.'s Note:

    I know there is a debate as to what constitutes "real" German potato salad. All I know is that this is TOO tasty! For those of you who shy away from German Potato salad because it is too vinegary, try this. It has converted MANY people as the balance is darn near perfect. Prep time does not include boiling the potatoes.

      Hi Michelle! This is a wonderful german potato salad. We loved it! I had some left over ham that needed to be used up and this was a perfect side dish to go with it. The vinegar, sugar, water and flour amounts were perfect for this dish. I have put this in my "keeper" notebook. Thank you for sharing and also thank your Mother!!!! :-)

      This is a great recipe. I substituted Yukon gold potatoes as that is all I had on hand, and also added a couple hard boiled eggs to the layers, and a chopped red pepper to the onion sauce. Very good!
